    The two largest U.S. energy firms, Chevron Corp and Exxon Mobil Corp, have increased their share of campaign donations to Democrats this year, according to latest filings, amid a looming battle over fracking. The vast majority, 85% of all oil and gas donations this election, have flowed on behalf of U.S. President Donald Trump, other Republican candidates and conservative causes, according to data from campaign researcher the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP). However, oil majors have put more money into Democratic coffers as some polls show Democratic challenger Joseph Biden with an as much as 10 percentage point lead and...

    Update (1000ET): Donald Trump Jr. has just raised an interesting question in a tweet: Is Twitter censoring the Hunter Biden stories from the NY Post at the behest of the Communist Party of China? "There needs to be an immediate government investigation into @twitter/@jack. Not just because of their blatant election interference to protect Biden, but to find out if they're censoring these NY Post stories at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party. Put Jack under oath!!!" Don Jr. tweeted. There needs to be an immediate government investigation into @twitter/@jack. Not just because of their blatant election interference...

    The biggest tanker in Venezuela, Ayacucho, has changed its name to Maximo Gorki and has been sailing under the Russian flag since June, Equasis reports. This is a vessel with a deadweight of 320,800 tons, that is, of the VLCC (Very Large Crude Carrier) class. It holds 2 million barrels of oil. The tanker was built by China’s Bohai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. In 2013, Venezuela’s state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) inaugurated the new supertanker. Venezuelan Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez then said that ‘this is the aircraft carrier of the Fatherland, of sovereignty.’ Of more than 800...

  • virgins and oil lamps

    The parable of the virgins consist of ten virgins with oil lamps waiting for the bridegroom to appear. Five realize they did not have any oil and went to town to buy some. Meanwhile bridegroom comes and takes the five wise virgins into the house. The five foolish virgins initially witout oil returns and could not get into the house with the bridgroom saying he did not know the foolish virgin.(Matth 25:1-13) Some parables Jesus explains the symbolism, but this time He does not. It is easy to realize the wise virgins represent saved or chosen saints and the bridgroom...
  • Venezuela Is Tearing Apart Oil Pipelines to Sell as Scrap Metal

    Bloomberg via Yahoo Snooze ^ | 9/11/20 | Fabiola Zerpa and Peter Millard
    Venezuela’s capacity to produce some much-needed gasoline and diesel of its own hinges on a single oil play. To tap it, the Nicolas Maduro regime is willing to cannibalize the country’s crumbling energy infrastructure to pay contractors with scrap metal. Unlike the tar-like crude from Venezuela’s Orinoco region, the light oil from Monagas state is the only kind that’s easy to process into fuel at the country’s aging refineries. It’s also the only area where production doesn’t require the help of sanction-wary partners. So, with the U.S. considering further steps to curb the country’s fuel imports, cash-strapped state producer Petroleos...
  • Kamala Harris Flip-Flops: Never Mind My “False Choice” Claim Last Year, Let’s Not Ban Fracking After All

    Alternate headline: Candidate checks electoral map, discovers why Pennsylvania’s called the Keystone State. At least Kamala Harris didn’t try to pretend that this was her position all along, as Joe Biden has for the last few weeks, but that doesn’t make this flip-flop much less crass. CNN’s Dana Bash sets this up as comfortably as possible for Harris, who now calls a fracking ban a “false choice” — even though Harris demanded one while campaigning last year: BASH: President Trump, Vice President Pence, they have been campaigning more and more on the issue of fracking, which is a process...

    Joe Biden has made it clear that he was for fracking before he was against it. Forget the cognitive testing – the cognitive dissidence of the incoherent policies his puppet masters are feeding him through his earpiece is enough to disqualify him for the presidency and may doom him politically in key states like Pennsylvania just as Hillary Clinton’s pledge to bankrupt a lot of coal companies did.

    CLAIM: Joe Biden claimed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: “I am not banning fracking.” VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE. Biden has promised to ban fracking — repeatedly — as has his running mate. Biden said Monday — during a speech supposedly on violence: “I am not banning fracking. Let me say again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me.”

    The leaders of the coup that ousted Mali's President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita spent most of the year training in Russia before returning to boot out the democratically-elected leader at gunpoint, according to sources in the Malian military. The rebels took control of Mali's largest military base in Kati, just outside the capital, Bamako, on Tuesday before storming Keita's official residence, seizing the president and forcing him to resign as leader of the West African nation. Numerous media outlets, including the BBC, immediately reported that the coup was led by Malick Diaw and Sadio Camara, two army colonels who hold top...

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has quietly removed a portion of its climate platform saying that it wants to end subsidies to fossil fuel companies, HuffPost reported. Party officials added an amendment which said that “Democrats support eliminating tax breaks and subsidies for fossil fuels, and will fight to defend and extend tax incentives for energy efficiency and clean energy,” to a group of provisions that were approved together, according to the news outlet. However, that language does not appear in the final version of the party’s platform. A DNC spokesperson told HuffPost in a statement that the amendment was...

    U.S. Interior Secretary David Bernhardt is set to approve oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). Liberals and journalists lost their minds. The Wall Street Journal reported that “[t]he Trump administration approved an oil leasing program for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Monday, opening up the pristine 19-million-acre wilderness to drilling for the first time.” The Journal said that it would be “difficult to unwind the decision should Democrats recapture the White House in November.” Perhaps that’s why Twitter users like NBC News’s Mary Murray called President Donald Trump’s administration’s latest move an “environmental atrocity” on Twitter.

    Decision opens part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling for the first time WASHINGTON—The Trump administration approved an oil leasing program for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge on Monday, opening up the pristine 19-million-acre wilderness to drilling for the first time and making it difficult to unwind the decision should Democrats recapture the White House in November. Approving the program clears the way to auction oil leases “right around the end of the year,” Interior Secretary David Bernhardt said in an interview. The decision caps more than 30 years of efforts by oil companies and Alaskan leaders to...

    A new study, led by researchers from University College London, is offering some of the first robust evidence showing how cannabidiol (CBD), a key compound in cannabis, increases cerebral blood flow in memory processing regions of the brain such as the hippocampus. CBD is just one of more than 100 different cannabinoids found in cannabis. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the compound most often associated with the plant’s psychoactive euphoric effects. CBD on the other hand is increasingly being found to confer a number of positive health outcomes. It recently became the first cannabis-derived compound ever approved by the FDA, used to...

    It’s been revealed that for the first time the US has successfully confiscated Iranian fuel cargo on the high seas that were deemed in violation of sweeping US-led sanctions on Iran’s energy sector. Recall that in late May Iran delivered five tankers laden with fuel to Venezuela at a moment the US was threatening military blockade in the Caribbean. Maduro sent military jets and warships to escort the Iranian tankers, which both countries hailed as a rare, victorious act of defiance against Washington’s plans. Later in July, when Iran again sent tankers for a second round of deliveries, which the...

    For decades, the New Mexico Oil and Gas Association has been a leader among trade associations in our state, earning a solid reputation from both sides of the aisle for helping us understand the intricacies of the challenges and opportunities in the industry. Over the years, its advocacy has helped to deliver record-breaking revenue for New Mexico that goes directly to funding our public schools and infrastructure while at the same time achieving the right balance of regulation to protect the environment and grow our economy. However, under Executive Director Ryan Flynn, the association has devolved into a highly charged...
